This program is meant for people who enjoy
reading short stories and novels and writing about
them. Recommenders are not compensated monetarily. However, Fictionwise today is
one of the leading independent eBook publishers and our website
delivers hundreds of thousands of page views a month, so
being a Recommender may have some value to you if you
are looking to build a writing career. Or you might just enjoy doing
As part of the application, you will need to submit two short recommendations.
Here are some hints on what we are looking for in a recommendation.
A Recommender's goal is to help the reader make a buying decision. Our hope is that Fictionwise Recommenders will develop a following and that
our members will come to recognize that they like
the same type of books that a specific Recommender likes. Our
Recommenders will be able to publish lists of their favorite eBooks
as well as their favorite authors. As you develop a following,
members will come to understand and trust your "taste" in eBooks.
Also, you can help our audience better understand certain authors
and their styles. For example, some of our authors are not rated
highly by the "general population" but they are hugely popular
within their "niche." You can help our members understand what type
of reader would fit in that niche. This would provide great value to
our members and to authors as well. Therefore, in general, we expect that Recommenders will write about eBooks they personally enjoyed, but it would benefit our audience if they also cover eBooks that -- while not their personal favorites -- may appeal to a particular type of reader or fan.
Your writing style, knowledge about authors and genres,
and overall writing talent will all play a part in our decision process.
Special note: don't put spoilers in your recommendations.
Our members will be able to "rate
your recommendations." The criteria they will be told to use is
whether your commentary was helpful to them when deciding to purchase an eBook.
result will be that we can then post a list of
our highest rated Recommenders. It will also give you feedback that can be
used to revise a recommendation (perhaps to make your point clearer).
